Spring TV season is here. Marvel’s “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” (Disney+) is about an unlikely duo teaming up. “The Nevers” (HBO) is a sci-fi drama set in the Victorian age, and it features Black actors, which isn’t the norm for period pieces. “Tina” is an HBO documentary about Tina Turner’s career. The fourth season of “Snowfall” (Hulu) takes place in LA during the crack epidemic and follows one character’s rise as a drug kingpin. “Shrill” (Hulu) follows a young journalist who wants to change her life but not her body. And “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is ending after 20 seasons.
